It is advisable to consult a fertility specialist even after a single miscarriage. But the scenarios described below require an immediate consultation:
Timing of pregnancy: The timing of the miscarriage during the course of pregnancy is crucial. An early miscarriage can happen without any warning signs. If the miscarriage leaves traces of the fetus in the uterus please consult a ZIVA fertility specialist.

The healthier the lifestyle the healthier the pregnancy and so is the delivery.
Uterine issues: When women with uterine abnormalities get pregnant, there are high chances of a miscarriage. So before getting pregnant please consult a ZIVA fertility specialist who will give non-surgical or surgical treatment to correct these issues. The most common abnormalities are fibroids, scarring, endometriosis etc. if you already had more than two miscarriages due to these issues then the appropriate treatment from an experienced fertility specialist can prevent future miscarriages.
